This container includes parameters that define an ad campaign funding strategy. The set of seller-configurable parameters depends on the selected fundingModel value.

Currently, the supported funding models are COST_PER_SALE (CPS) and COST_PER_CLICK (CPC). For onsite ads, the CPC model supports two bidding strategies: FIXED and DYNAMIC.
The ID of the eBay marketplace where the campaign is hosted.
The date and time the campaign starts, in UTC format (yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ssZ). For display purposes, convert this time into the local time of the seller.

On the date specified, the service derives the keywords for each listing in the campaign, creates an ad for each listing, and associates each new ad with the campaign. The campaign starts after this process is completed. The amount of time it takes the service to start the campaign depends on the number of listings in the campaign. Call getCampaign to check the status of the campaign.
